“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” – Frida Kahlo, Painter

This blog has been a way for me to move more consciously through life, to peek into the unexplored corners of my flawed soul and to reach out into the dark to see if there is anyone else out there like me. Turns out there is and inside these collected writings and inside your wonderful comments lies evidence of all of that and more.
Just over two years ago, I posted my first piece of writing on this blog and today I post my last. I am grateful I found you and that you found me. I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made along the way, but now it’s time for new beginnings.
I’ve tiptoed around my dream of writing a novel for a couple of decades now and blogging has helped me tiptoe a little longer. It’s time to set blogging aside, along with all of the lovely diversions that come with it, and take a leap of faith.
“We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.” – Henry David Thoreau, Writer, Naturalist, Philosopher
Momentum ebbs, flows, shifts and gathers. I hope it is gathering in good ways in your life. If you are new here, stay a while and have a look around. If you are one of my lovely readers, I thank you for that from the bottom of my heart. I hope to share my novel with you all one day soon.
Listen to your heart and if you hear something calling, don’t be afraid to take that leap in the dark to your success. It’s never too late.
I’m here if you need me.
